Hi Denise,
While you are in the LIbrary of Virginia Chancery cases you might want to look at the Library of Virginia Chancery case of Burwell W Baker vs Casandra Baker,Guardian of Mary Jane Baker (wife and daughter of Brooks Baker) of 1868 regarding a land division after the death of Brooks Baker where the land was eventually divided between Burwell W. Baker and Brooks Baker daughter, Mary Jane Baker. On page 13 of the suit it describes that the land was owned first by Abraham Baker. 478 on a Blue Ridge Mountain, before it went to Harvey Baker and then Brooks Baker and Burwell W. Baker. On page 15 you might be interested in a plat of that land and description on Falling Creek on the Blue Ridge that had originally belonged to your Abraham Baker.
